The Complete Guide to Dental Implants

Transforming Smiles in Leicester


In the world of modern dentistry, dental implants stand as revolutionary solutions for restoring smiles and oral functionality. Leicester, a vibrant city in the heart of England, embraces this dental innovation to provide its residents with lasting solutions for missing teeth. Let’s delve into the world of dental implants and explore how they are transforming smiles in Leicester here at Knighton Dental.


Understanding Dental Implants


Dental implants are prosthetic teeth roots made of titanium, which are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line. They serve as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants offer a permanent and natural-looking solution for missing teeth, restoring both aesthetics and functionality to the smile.

Durability: Our dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care, providing a long-term solution for missing teeth.
Natural Appearance: Implants closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, enhancing the aesthetics of the smile.
Improved Oral Health: Unlike traditional bridges, implants do not require adjacent teeth to be altered or compromised, preserving the integrity of surrounding teeth.
Enhanced Functionality: Dental implants restore biting and chewing functionality, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions.
Bone Preservation: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure over time.

Osseointegration: Over the following weeks to months, the implants fuse with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring stability and durability.
Restoration: Once the implants have integrated successfully, custom-made prosthetic teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, are securely attached to the implants, completing the smile transformation.
